Out of more than  5000 entries by 370 photographers from all over Europe. – This was the first time I entered the GDT competition, so I am very happy that I was lucky already from start.  The jury seemed to appreciate also the not only beautiful, as well as a more journalistic nature photography approach, which I think was brave of them, says Widstrand.

Widstrand was one of the speakers at the festival, presenting a slide show and a talk about the Big Five Carnivores of Scandinavia.
